{Family Favorite Recipe Book}

Live-It List item #7 – Compile a recipe book of family favorite recipes.

Check!!

Here’s a peek at my recipe book from Shutterfly consisting of my family’s favorite recipes.

Hopefully Sophia and Isabella will keep the traditions going…

A childhood favorite German recipe – Shooten Kraphlen.

I included pics of the family cooking….

and family traditions…

I went to shutterfly.com to make my book, but you can make a homemade version by using page protectors and inserting your favorite recipes.

Happy Cooking and Baking!!

Live-It: Simplify Meal Planning w/ an Easy and Affordable Recipe Book

One of my liVe-iT liSt items is making meal planning more of a priority (but in a way that doesn’t require much work)!  If you are anything like me, when you go to your recipes it may look something like this:

An Unorganized Mess!!

So how did I fix this problem?! I bought some protective sleeves (made for 5×7 sized pictures) and put them in a binder.  Then added adhesive tabs to keep them oRganiZed!

I also added some full length page protectors for some of my larger recipes and for my meal list!  Now when someone GiVes me a recipe, no matter the shape or size, I have a place to keep it protected!

My meal list includes the name of every meal we eat and the main ingredients needed.  Every time I go shopping I grab the list so I no longer have to take my entire recipe book or make a handwritten list.  It has really come in handy!

This live-it list item was something that I completed in an afternoon.  My next task is to get all of my recipes typed on the computer and saved.  Like any goal, it is a work in progress and I will reJoiCe and eNjoY every small step I make!

Cheers!
